Chateau Lascombes Margaux 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine
Chateau Lascombes Margaux 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Limited, No discounts! 92 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "In less than five years this property has emerged as one of the appellation's up and coming stars thanks to the infusion of money from the American conglomerate, Colony Capital, as well as the braintrust that now oversees the winemaking, Yves Vatelot (of Reignac fame) and the internationally renowned oenologist, Michel Rolland. The dark plum/ruby-hued, open-knit 2003 offers a big, sweet nose of barbecue smoke, plum liqueur, creme de cassis, flowers, new saddle leather, and damp earth. Loads of black fruits, a full-bodied palate impression, low acidity, and a savory, expansive mouthfeel suggest it can be drunk in 2-3 years, or cellared for 15+." -Robert Parker 91 Points - Wine Spectator, March 2006 "Aromas of blackberry and chocolate follow through to a full-bodied palate, with big velvety tannins and a long, caressing finish. Best after 2010. 17,500 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Leoville Las Cases St. Julien 1995 Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL
Chateau Leoville Las Cases St. Julien 1995 Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited, No Discounts! 95 Points - Wine Advocate, February 1998 "If it were not for the prodigious 1996, everyone would be concentrating on getting their hands on a few bottles of the fabulous 1995 Leoville-Las-Cases, which is one of the vintage's great success stories. The wine boasts an opaque ruby/purple color, and exceptionally pure, beautifully knit aromas of black fruits, minerals, vanillin, and spice. On the attack, it is staggeringly rich, yet displays more noticeable tannin than its younger sibling. Exceptionally ripe cassis fruit, the judicious use of toasty new oak, and a thrilling mineral character intertwined with the high quality of fruit routinely obtained by Las Cases, make this a compelling effort. There is probably nearly as much tannin as in the 1996, but it is not as perfectly sweet as in the 1996. The finish is incredibly long in this classic. Only 35% of the harvest was of sufficient quality for the 1995 Leoville-Las-Cases. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025." -Robert Parker

Chateau Leoville Poyferre St. Julien 2000 French Red Bordeaux Wine 759 mL
Chateau Leoville Poyferre St. Julien 2000 French Red Bordeaux Wine 759 mL

Extremely Limited, No discounts! 97 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "The plushest, most ostentatious and dramatic of all the Leovilles in 2000, this wine is already sumptuous, displaying some nuances in its huge nose of vanilla bean, black chocolate, jammy black cherries, cassis, and graphite in a flamboyant style. Opulent, savory, rich, and full-bodied, it is a head-turning, prodigious wine and a complete contrast to the extracted behemoth of Leoville Barton and the backward, classic Leoville Las Cases. The Poyferre's low acidity, sweet tannin and an already gorgeous mouthfeel make it a wine to drink now as well as over the next 25 or more years." -Robert Parker

Chateau Malescot St. Exupery Margaux 2000 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited, No discounts! 95 Points - Wine Advocate, June 2010 "This estate, which has continued to impress me in recent years, hit a home run in 2000. Showing slightly better than I rated it previously, this wine is deep bluish/purple with some lightening at the edge, and its floral nose displays notes of melted licorice, crushed rock, blueberries and black raspberries. A wine of extraordinary balance, equilibrium, and purity, with supple tannins, this medium to full-bodied, concentrated effort is already compelling and has hit its window of full maturity, where it should stay for another 15-20 years." -Robert Parker

Chateau Malescot St. Exupery Margaux 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 91 Points - Wine Advocate, August 2014 "Showing no signs of age, this fully mature, dark plum/ruby-colored 2003 offers notes of forest floor, spring flowers, spice box and tobacco leaf. It possesses all the finesse one would expect, which is surprising in such a hot year. This medium-bodied Margaux should continue to drink well for a decade or more." -Robert Parker

Chateau Moulin St. George St. Emilion 2000 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 91 points - Wine Advocate, April 2003 "The finest Moulin St.-Georges ever produced, the exuberant, rich, textured 2000 boasts sumptuous aromas and flavors of creme de cassis and blueberry liqueur. The new oak is concealed by the wealth of fruit. While there is abundant tannin in the finish, it is both sweet and well-integrated. This seamless beauty, which is not terribly dissimilar from the perfect 2000 Ausone, is a sleeper of the vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2004-2018." -Robert Parker

Chateau Moulin St. George St. Emilion 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Limited, No discounts. 91 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "Another estate owned by perfectionist Alain Vauthier (the proprietor of Ausone), this is the poor person's value pick from this proprietor. One of the finest vintages ever made by Alain Vauthier is the 2003 Moulin St.-Georges, a sleeper of the vintage. Deep purple to the rim with an exquisite nose of blueberries, white flowers, crushed rocks, and mulberry, the wine is rich, textured, powerful, and much more structured and full-bodied than it usually is in other vintages. This wine will actually benefit from 3-4 years of bottle-age and drink well for 15-20 years." -Robert Parker

Chateau Pavie Macquin St. Emilion 2003 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL
Chateau Pavie Macquin St. Emilion 2003 French Red Bordeaux Wine 750 mL

Extremely limited, No discounts! 95 Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "This tremendous terroir has been brought back to life over the last 15 years by Nicolas Thienpont and Stephane Derenoncourt. Its 37-acre vineyard, planted in deep clay and limestone soils, is composed of 70% Merlot, 25% Cabernet Franc, and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon. Pavie-Macquin is not far from Gerard Perse's little treasure, Pavie-Decesse. The 2003 Pavie-Macquin turned out brilliantly, no doubt because its soils supported the summer's torrid heat and drought. Tipping the scales at 13.8% alcohol, it boasts an opaque purple color along with a gorgeous nose of blackberries, smoked meats, licorice, incense, and barbecue spices. Huge fruit on the attack is followed by a powerful, masculine wine with huge extract, high tannin, low acidity, and formidable power. Despite its low acidity, this is a wine to forget for 3-4 years, and drink over the following 20-25 years. When fully mature, this brilliant effort should rival the 2000 and 1998." -Robert Parker 96 Points - Wine Spectator, March 2006 "Incredible nose of raspberry jam with vanilla and floral undertones. Full-bodied, with velvety, caressing tannins and loads of fruit on the finish. Best after 2010. 3,330 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Pavie St. Emilion 2003 Red Bordeaux Wine

Extremely limited, No discounts! 98+ Points - Wine Advocate, April 2006 "This 92-acre vineyard, which enjoys an impeccable southern orientation, is composed of limestone on the upper slopes, clay and limestone in the middle, and sand and clay at the base. Proprietor Gerard Perse, who has done a brilliant job since acquiring the estate in 1998, continues to push the envelope of quality to higher and higher heights. Planted with 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon, the grapes receive kid glove treatment with hand-harvesting into small plastic lugs, two triage tables, and aging for 28 months in 100% new oak that is purchased in advance, then air-dried and coopered according to Perse's specifications. In short, the man is a perfectionist, and the quality of all the estates he owns has soared dramatically." -Robert Parker 96 Points - Wine Spectator, July 2006 "Dark purple. Shows intense aromas of raisin, coffee and treacle tart. Very, very ripe. Full-bodied, superrich and velvety. This is so layered and powerful. Blockbuster. Best after 2008. 7,500 cases made." -James Suckling

Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1988 French Dessert Wine
Chateau Rieussec Sauternes 1988 French Dessert Wine

Extremely Limited! No Discounts rated 93 points Wine Advocate April 1995

"Although the 1988 received the highest marks of the 1988, 1989 and 1990 vintages, it remains a very backward wine. Full-bodied and powerful, extremely rich and dense, it may be the least evolved 1988. The nose offers enticing coconut, orange, vanilla, and honeyed scents. The flavors are highly extracted. The wine's acidity and youthfulness suggest this wine needs another 5-10 years of cellaring. It should keep for 30 years.Drink 2000-2025" -Robert Parker rated 90 points Winespectator "A beautiful, fresh and elegant Sauternes, with apple pie, lemon and candied apple on the nose. Full-bodied, with bright and clean aniseed, apple and apricot flavors. Medium-sweet and a crisp finish. Bordeaux blind retrospective (2008). Drink now." -James Suckling
